Veteran Council Members Believe Themselves to Be Entitled to Certain Memorials to Themselves

We have failed to impress upon certain Metro Council Members that prior service to their country does not entitle them to rename whole streets after themselves. Whatever happened to the modest and humble sense that service is honor in and of itself, regardless of whether awards are ever bestowed? Why aren't these council members using their leadership positions to raise private funds for war memorials rather than playing on public gratitude to leverage tax dollars? Second reading is scheduled for Tuesday. Usually resolutions that pass second reading also pass third reading easily.
